🏡 Different Addresses for Different Blockchains
In the crypto universe, there's more than one blockchain. You've got the Bitcoin blockchain, the Ethereum blockchain, the Binance Smart Chain, and many others. Each of these blockchains operates independently and has its own unique address format.
Just as you can't mail a letter to "123 Bitcoin St" and expect it to arrive at "123 Ethereum Ave," you can't send Bitcoin to an Ethereum address or vice versa. In a multi-chain wallet, when you're receiving funds, you'll need to make sure you're using the correct address for the type of crypto you're receiving. If you're getting Bitcoin, use your Bitcoin address. If it's Ethereum, use your Ethereum address. These addresses are all part of your wallet, but each one connects to a different blockchain.
🧭 Find your addresses in Zelus wallet
To find your different addresses in Zelus wallet, tap on the dedicated icon located at the top right of any major screen.
You will notice that multiple blockchains appear listed under the Ethereum address. This is because all these blockchains are EVM-compatible, and use the same architecture and the same address format as Ethereum. This means you can use the same Ethereum address to receive funds on any of these blockchains.
On the My Addresses screen, identify the blockchain address you want to use. You may tap on the QR button to see a QR code of that specific address, or tap on the Copy button to copy the address and paste it wherever you need to.
🔐 Safety reminder
It is very important not to confuse your (public) addresses with your private keys or secret recovery phrase.
